You hit it on the head with the thematic jamming as opposed to a more exploratory approach.I can find something to like in every version played in 70',so it is not that I find them disappointing,it is just a feeling of the music not flowing and seeming in the moment,sort of like it's a bit of a struggle and the band is out of touch with how to approach the song.I will agree that Jerry had a beautiful tone and in the versions I enjoy the most the pace seemed just right.What I am going to do is revisit the 70'-71' output and see what I see.

After reading your other comment, I think we're on different pages as far as '70 Stars are concerned, so my favorites are probably not that thrilling for you. But our outlook is probably more similar when it comes to '71 Stars, as the ones after Keith joins are in another dimension from the early-'71 versions. (Though even then, it's often the thematic jams that excite me the most!)
